“Divided We Fall,” together we can do amazing things. That’s the message behind AARP’s new national campaign to amplify the voices of millions of Americans who believe health and long-term financial security are the most pressing issues facing the nation at home. People face many difficult demands affording health care, saving for retirement, sending children and grandchildren to college and supporting aging parents. Many Americans are asking, “Am I one illness away from being financially ruined? Will Social Security be there for me and my children and grandchildren? Do I have enough to retire?”

In a recent written announcement, AARP President Erick Olsen, who resides in Glenbrook, joins CEO Bill Novelli in suggesting the nation is reaching a tipping point. It doesn’t have to be this way and AARP intends to do something about it. AARP believes that its is time for individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations and government to come together to find solutions. “Divided We Fall” will initiate a national dialogue on the need for affordable, quality health care and long-term as well. AARP is ready to lead this dialogue, but doesn’t have all the answers. Be a part of this cause. Join AARP today.
